I am going to try a civilized approach to this review, but seeing as I finished the book exactly four minutes and thirty two seconds ago, and am still reeling from the emotions (THE FEEEELLSSS THE FEEEEEEELS), I do not promise civilized talk.
I DO NOT PROMISE IT. I DO, HOWEVER, PROMISE FIGHTING, CRYING, SOBBING, AND OTHER HORRIBLE, DISGUSTING NOISES FOR THE HORRIBLENESS OF IT ALL.
Normally I don't tend to take my rage out on authors, but you are an exception, Julie. That being said, I do this because I love you and your awesomeness and the only way I can express my undying devotion and adoration to you other than bowing to you is through cursing and swearing — at you, namely and unfortunately — so I apologize severely in advance.
Because I do love you. I do. Immensely.
Even though you are the most sadistic author I have ever come across.
Julie and other reviewers alike, you want to see me? You want to see the lunacy that invades my mind when I think of Zeke and Allison and Jackal and Kanin? YOU WANT TO SEE IT?
BECAUSE THIS WAS ME:
COUPLED WITH THIS:
Except much, much worse. Like, 100000 times worse.
I am not kidding. That was me.
I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL 2014, I CAN'T HOLY SHITTTTTTTTWarning for future reviewers:
Just when you expect everything to be fine, DON'T. Julie Kagawa comes and rips your guts out. YOUR. GUTS. OUT. You thought The Iron Fey
was horrible? YOU THOUGHT THAT WAS BAD?
This is so much worse.So much.
BUT IT WAS SO BEAUTIFUL. Kanin
was an amazing character; I loved him. I just do. I now completely understand why Kanin and Allison don't connect like Zeke and Allison do. They are made for each other. I am now wholeheartedly Zeke x Allison. I am sorry I wasn't there for you in book one, Zeke. BUT I AM NOW. SO FORGIVE ME. PLEASE.ALLISON
, YOU BADASS VAMPIRE BLOODSUCKING CREATURE. I love you so much. I just — I'm even considering this book is rivaling up against The Iron Fey
, and that is one of my toppity of the tops. It's that
, or should I say James,
you bastard, I thought I would hate you after what you did to Darren. But, against all odds, you and I connected.
Horribly so, I admit.
Your dry humor was, at times, the only reason I kept pushing on when Allison's life got too much for me. ZEKE OMG PLEASE BE OKAY.
I just — I just — I can't. I CAN'T.
There were so many beautiful moments, so many stupid twists, and so much hope.
Only to be fcking crushed in the end, thank you very much sadistic Julie.
I hope this story has a happy ending. Because if it doesn't, I swear to God I will go Sarren on JK and track her down and make her rewrite the ending. I swear I will. It may take me years, it may put me in jail, BUT I WILL JULIE. I WILL COME FOR YOU AND MAKE YOU PAY.I'm joking. But still.five billion fcking stars.I WON'T BE ABLE TO WAIT OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOOODDDDDD
